Good Morning ABFAS & Mason Colleagues,

As we celebrate Woman's History Month, please join us for a conference call TODAY, March 16th from noon-1pm hosted by Mariama Boney, Director of University Information.

We will have a sister circle discussion about Empowering Black and African Heritage Women in Higher Education. Please call 703-993-9509. You will be asked for the password 39509.

Lanitra Berger, Director in the Honors College will share reflections on how sisters can empower each other.

Then we will reflect upon and discuss the following:

1. What accomplishments have been made by Black and African Heritage women in Higher Education over the past 10 years?
2. What challenges still exist for Black and African Heritage women in Higher Education?
3. When you think about what you want people to know about being a Black or African Heritage woman in Higher Education, what main things do you want them to know?
4. What initiatives or programs would you like to be in place for Black or African Heritage women in Higher Education at Mason?
